About

I am a writer and freelance journalist based in London. I write about culture, politics and the climate, and have pieces published in the Guardian, FT Life & Arts, the FT Weekend magazine, Slate, ArtReview, the Times Literary Supplement, the i paper, the Times, Vice, the Economist’s 1843 magazine, Port magazine, the Telegraph, the New Statesman, Little White Lies, and Another Gaze.

My debut novel, DEEP DOWN, will be published by Little, Brown in early 2023.

I was runner up in the Telegraph’s Cassandra Jardine Prize 2015, shortlisted for the Portobello Prize 2017 and shortlisted for the FT/Bodley Head Essay prize 2018. I was also shortlisted for the Freelance Writing Awards art and design writer of the year in 2021.

As Bougie London Literary Woman (@BougieLitWoman), I’ve done interviews with Vice and the Guardian.

I was also the 2019 Head of the Programme for Stockholm Feminist Film Festival, and wrote a video game set in small town Sweden called How We Know We’re Alive.

I’m represented by Kat Aitken at United.
